  1. Automated Analysis of Fisheries Information from Digital Stills

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 821F

    Toyon proposes development of a system which performs automated analysis of images for fish population monitoring and fishing regulation enforcement application. The proposed system is capable of processing images collected from autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), as well as images collected using electronic monitoring (EM) cameras used to observe fish catc ...

  2. The X-3D Array: An Affordable Three Dimensional, High Speed, Towed Hydrophone Array

    SBC: BIOWAVES, INC.            Topic: 821F

    We proposed to test, design, and modify an existing ‘X-Array’ tetrahedral (3-D) hydrophone array prototype and design with the ultimate goal of developing a production prototype called the ‘X-3D Array’. We will analyze field data collected previously from the first prototype, conduct hydrodynamic modeling of the array design, and research possible torque imbalances in the tow-cable, and us ...

  3. Development of Genetics-based Selective Breeding Protocols for Improvement of the Mediterranean Mussel, Mytilus galloprovincialis, and Advancement of Aquaculture

    SBC: Catalina Sea Ranch            Topic: 811F

    The problem this proposal seeks to remedy has positive and profound ramifications for the advancement of aquaculture. The aquaculture industry lags in genetically based selective breeding programs when compared to terrestrial commercial crops. This perpetuates our nation’s $11 billion dollar seafood deficit, puts U.S. aquaculture entrepreneurs at a disadvantage for success, and increases risk fo ...

  4. Developing Resilience to Ocean Acidification in Red Abalone Aquaculture

    SBC: Cultured Abalone Farm LLC, The            Topic: 811F

    It is now recognized that the pH of the world’s oceans is becoming more acidic as a consequence of increasing atmospheric CO2. This process, termed “ocean acidification” (OA) will affect the aquaculture of marine shellfish. In order to maintain current levels of commercial mollusk production, the identification and commercialization of resilient shellfish strains will be required. Emerging e ...

  5. Low-Cost Renewable Hydrogen Manufacturing

    SBC: Sierra Energy            Topic: DLA152001

    Sierra Energy proposes to demonstrate the production of low-cost hydrogen from waste-derived syngas. Sierra is currently partnered with the DOD ESTCP Program, and the California Energy Commission (CEC) to build a pilot-scale gasification facility at the garrison at Fort Hunter Liggett (FHL) Syngas is a mixture of H2 and CO and can be used directly for the generation of electricity via a generat ...

  6. In-Situ Thermal Inspection System for Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: STRATONICS, INC.            Topic: DLA152001

    Stratonics innovation is an in-situ thermal inspection system for additive manufacturing that monitors and identifies critical thermal indicators to significantly increase yield, reducing cost and schedule while correlating inspection data to post-process inspection, supporting certification and quality part production. In-situ inspection and analysis of key thermal metrics will reduce material wa ...

  7. Environmentally Stable Joint Manufacturing Technologies

    SBC: SAN DIEGO COMPOSITES, INC.            Topic: DLA152001

    SDCs environmentally stable composite joint can be manufactured at costs on the order of steel equivalents, eliminate up to 98% of corrosion prevention costs, and provide an ROI greater than 10. SDCs ESC joint was demonstrated at TRL 4 to be structurally equivalent to comparable metal structures and to eliminate corrosive moisture ingress to critical regions of a structure. This DLA Phase I SBIR w ...

  8. Rapid Lateral Flow Assay for Field Detection of Brevetoxins

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 812N

    The bloom-forming algae Karenia brevis produces neurotoxins known as brevetoxins (PbTx) that can cause illness in humans and marine wildlife. During K. brevis blooms, also known as red tides, elevated levels of brevetoxins have been linked to massive bird, fish, and marine mammal kills. In addition, human consumption of brevetoxin contaminated shellfish leads to neurotoxic shellfish poisoning. The ...
